FYI - for the last 2 years Nitron have had a winter offer for the remote preload at half price so if you can hang on you could save best part of a 100.
Might be worth contacting Nitron direct. They're a small company, and in the present situation they may be glad of an order, even by extending an offer price!

ps. What's wrong with the hideous teal green colour anyway? Ooops .....

For the record I put the Nitron R3 shock from the 15 plate Tiger Sport onto the 19 plate   .... it fits exactly the same. Note also you can adjust the shock length which you can use as a bit of ride height adjustment.

Front forks for me this winter .... not sure what tho yet.

Yep, Wilbers also supply the same shock for all years of Tiger Sport, Front springs too. Interestingly Hyperpro do different kits for the Front of the RBW Model, I asked Hyperpro what the difference was and they said just Oil spec and air gap.
